Unable to play DVDs in Windows Media Player & Power DVD
Suddenly, none of the DVDs play right in CyberLink Power DVD and even in the latest version 11 of Windows Media Player. In Windows Media, only the audio can be heard, but the video does not run. In CyberLink Power DVD, the audio and video move haltingly.
Would greatly appreciate help. Thanks. Anil

The latest version of the Sansa E250 only has one mode... MTP. USB mode has been removed. My windows XP laptop would see the device and install it fine, but Media Player, Yahoo Music, and any other software would not recognize the MTP device until I installed Windows Media Player 11.
Once installed, even Yahoo Jukebox recognized the device.
I returned 1 & got a new one before I tried this solution. So if you're having a similar issue, don't return it until you've tried the latest version of WMP.
Download the latest version of the Philips Deivce Manager from Philips website and use the Update option on the new version. This player requires a firmware upgrade to make it compatible with Windows Media Player 11, and the Update function in the Philips Device Manager will perform this for you.
For me, having upgraded Windows Media Player to version 11 caused the problem you are experiencing. Find a computer with Windows Media Player Version 10, then use iRiver's firmware update tool to install new firmware (version 1.77), then your T10 will work fine even with Media Player Version 11.
Follow the process on the Philips website -FAQ, "I have upgraded my Windows Media Player from 10 to 11 and encountered problem with synchronization and detection of unit by PC? What could be the problem?"

I have put plenty of DVDs onto my Archos, but I use the optional cradle which connect to the TV as well as DVD players. You simply connect the DVD player onto it and play your dvd, which switching on the Recorder function on your unit.
Alternatively, can you convert the DVD onto your PC and then transfer onto the Archos in normal fashion, or is this what you are saying you tried to do already?
